Cruisin’ for a Reviewsin’ - Tom Cruise Movie Reviews
Episode 65 - Top Gun Maverick LIVE

Episode 65 - Top Gun Maverick LIVE

May 31, 2022

In a stunning case of the stars aligning perfectly for me, I wrapped up the filmography of Tom Cruise just before his latest film started showing in cinemas & I got to do my first live episode! What a time to be alive! I got to host a screening of the new Top Gun before sitting down with Ben McLeay in front of a live audience of very attractive people to talk about how sick this film was. We do our best to avoid spoilers & instead talk at great length about G forces, whether the enemy nation was Iran, sick plane stunts & the weird rules in the local Top Gun pub that made absolutely no sense.

Note: We had a lot of crowd participation which I did my best to crank up but some of it's still too hard to hear. You can watch the video to hear all that was said here on instagram.

Episode 64 - Losin’ It

May 20, 2022

We're down to the last film of Tom Cruise's filmography & it's probably one of the more obscure titles that apparently no one has seen or even heard of! I am joined by Frank to discuss this weird, unfunny & yet strangely self aware "teen sex comedy" that we both really enjoyed despite it being truly terrible in every way. Join us as we discuss Tom's youthful beauty, horny cars, Carol Brady kissing teen boys, racist tropes, donkey shows & just how irredeemable the main characters are.

Minisode 25 - Austin Powers, Shrek & Fashion chat

April 11, 2022

Tom Cruise doesn't do cameos except for that one time he did in Austin Powers Goldmember, portraying Austin Powers himself. Emma & I discuss this hilarious segment of a very silly film franchise as well as Shrek & the evolution of fashion since the 60s. Very random but very fun!

Episode 63 - Endless Love

March 28, 2022

As we draw super close to the end of Tom Cruise's filmography, we're finally watching the 1st film he was ever cast in which is absolutely god awful. He has only one scene (where he squeezes in a surprising amount of Tom Cruisisms) & the rest of the film is absolute trash. Join Emma & I as we mock this film mercilessly & discuss a variety of topics such as how Brook Shields was exploited from a very young age, how the 80s were just kind of cooked in general, running in denim, horny mum's & how you'd be better off if you dumped your boyfriend.

Lauren & I finish off our review of this film in our usual casual, meandering style, with lots more Autism chat. We also discuss our love of KMart undies, farts, our thoughts on Forrest Gump & that time Tom Cruise dated queer icon, Cher! Once again, this is your WARNING that we swear a lot in this episode so please don't be mad at us, It's called self expression, Helen!

It's finally time to tackle the film I had the most apprehension about. But luckily I am joined once again by Lauren who was diagnosed with ASD in the last year & was able to give lots of great insight into their experience with autism & what this film got right & wrong. Join us as we also discuss tiffs with dads, women in sneakers, hating billionaires, Titanic theatre restaurants & much more. WARNING: There's lots of swearing in this episode, like way more than usual. You've been warned!

Episode 60 - The Firm (part 2)

January 31, 2022

Scott & I wrap up our review of this slick Grisham adaption where Tom Cruise spends a lot of it running for his life. For a film that has such a non-sexy conclusion (unless you think mail fraud is sexy, I suppose), it's really bloody enjoyable from start to end. Join us as we talk more about the appeal of Tom Cruise & why the couch thing wasn't a big deal, how we wish JK Rowling would piss off, the never ending stream of Marvel movies & I remind everyone, yet again, about how much I hate Jeremy Renner.

In another shocking twist, this week's guest has also seen this film but not for ages so it almost doesn't count, maybe? I am joined by Scott to discuss a film we both really enjoy but oh my god, so much happens! Join us as we discuss everything from time zones (we simply do not understand 'em), the Fast & the Furious franchise, how good a lawyer Tom Cruise would have been if he hadn't gotten into acting, horny grieving, boat explosions, Jigsaw being a creep & much more.

Maria is back to tell me all about that time she met Tom Cruise! She gives all the goss on how the most famous movie star operates at a film premiere & the differences between a 40 minute interview with Tom & 10ish minutes with Russel Crowe. We also chat about entertainment journalism in general, ageing in Hollywood (including why you shouldn't go to the baseball the day after getting fillers) & lots, lots more!
